Actress and storyteller Dolores Hydock brings Ann Landers to the Homewood Public Library stage on May 15th and 16th in the one-woman play The Lady With All The Answers.

Reprising a role that earned a 4-star review from Alec Harvey in The Birmingham News, Hydock portrays the world-renowned advice columnist on the night in 1975 when she struggles to write what will become her most famous column. Along the way, she tells the funny and fascinating story of her life and her work, including excerpts from her most memorable letters. No topic was off-limits for Ann Landers, and, since many of these topics are discussed, this play is not recommended for persons under 16.

The event, sponsored by the Friends of the Homewood Public Library, includes a delicious buffet of heavy hors d’oeuvres from 6:30 to 7:30 pm. The performance is from 7:30 to 9 pm. Tickets are $20 and are available at the Adult Services Desk of the Homewood Public Library.

Come spend an evening with the woman who seemed like family to millions of readers who had breakfast with her – or at least her advice – every morning.

"The Lady With All The Answers meets the lady with all the talent. Hydock...has an uncanny connection with her audience. From the top of her well-known and now dated bouffant to the bottom of her oh-so-ladylike shoes, she is every inch Ann Landers." 4 stars ...
